Why Choose the Trimetals Protect-a-Cycle Store?
Designed with all serious cyclists and security in mind, the Protect-a-Cycle store is the only bike store in the UK to be awarded the Loss Prevention Certification Board and Police Preferred Specification stamps of approval. No longer do you need to worry with your valuables, as this secure metal storage unit boasts impressive safety features such as an cable, heavy-duty security, and integral ground anchor.
If you are storing expensive bikes, live in a high crime area, or intend using the product in an exposed location such as a front garden, then we strongly recommend purchasing the Protect-a-Cycle Store from Trimetals. As well as metal storage units offer the most secure storage solution, they are also maintenance free for ease of use. This product is also approved to LPS1175 and can help housing professional gain extra points under the Code for Sustainable Homes.
Another key feature of this product is that it now comes with an option of a hinged front ramp. This allows easier access to bicycles and is useful for heavier items which may be more of a struggle to lift into the unit. This patented design simply drops down when access is needed, and folds back into position to form the lower base. The ramp is made using a one piece aluminium plate which ensures both high strength and easy operation.
